Hijack - There are dozens of nice hotels/pensioni/B&B's in Casterotto.
This site has links to all those with websites:

You can't go wrong with a week spent between Castelrotto and Cortina ...
Spectacular scenery, lovely drives, hikes - this area has it all

Hope this helps ...

We were in Cortina in late June last year. I wouldn't worry about finding a place in advance. Just look around when you get there, although go several places to see if you can find a "deal". It seemed to us that summer is the off-season there, like it is at Whistler here in our part of the world (summer rates are a third of winter rates). You should have no problem finding a nice place for your budget.

I agree--stay there. Or, check the Val Gardena web site for Ortisei.

In Ortisei I can recommend the Hotel La Perla. I stayed there for 5 days in June 2004. It's a very well run hotel, a typical ski chalet, serves delicious food, with balconies and lovely views from most, if not all rooms, and it's right on the road to Castelrotto, which is just 15 minutes away.

Ortisei has a ski lift and some great hiking nearby. There's a nice trail directly across from La Perla which takes you to town.
As for the drives you mentioned in your first post, the drive from Ortisei to Cortina is the Great Dolomite Road, which has spectacular scenery. It will take a few hours each way with plenty of stops for photo ops. There were also a number of scenic local drives in the Ortisei/Castelrotto area. Good luck.
